Yes, Legacy West’s newest headquarters will be the aerospace giant – Boeing! Boeing joins several other corporate tenants at Plano’s Legacy West, including Toyota North America, JP Morgan Chase, Liberty Mutual, FedEx Office and many other companies setting up a corporate home in the new development.
Sitting on the top of floor of one of the Legacy West’s office buildings and located at the entrance of the mixed-use development off Legacy Drive, the headquarters will be home to executive offices serving about 20,000 Boeing Global Services employees around the world. It will serve about 50 leadership executives and support staff at the site, including Boeing Global Services top executive President and CEO Stan Deal.
“We have a fixed focus on serving our customers worldwide, and this location assists in our mission of providing uncompromising service worldwide,” he said, in a statement.
Legacy West Master Developer told the Dallas Business Journal, “I am so excited an unbelievable American company, like Boeing, has chosen Legacy West for their divisional headquarters; it’s an honor. Out of all the cities they could’ve gone to in the United States, we are very excited they chose us.”
Plano’s Mayor, Harry LaRosiliere was also very happy about the news and said in a statement, “On behalf of the city of Plano, we are thrilled to welcome an iconic 100-year- innovative company like Boeing. Through the partnership with our city and the many amenities of Legacy West, we look forward to helping Boeing Global Services deliver on its mission.”
Even Texas’ Governor, Greg Abbott is thrilled and spoke of the course that our state has taken to get to this point of development. “Texas continues to be a global powerhouse in business expansion and relocation because of our economic policies that encourage industry leaders, like Boeing, to expand their operations here,” said Governor Abbott. “As governor, I will continue to promote a low-tax and reasonable regulatory environment that removes barriers to entry and provides certainty for developing industries. I am proud to welcome Boeing’s new Global Services unit to Texas and look forward to working with them further to continue their expansion in the Lone Star State.”
It seems seems everyone is excited about Boeing joining us in Plano, and we McCoys are no different. We feel that this is such an exciting time to call Plano home and are confident it’s only going to get better from here.
